This is how it works:

There's this update program you can run on the phone. It will connect to orange via GRPS, tell you if theres any updates available for your region and let you download them.
Thats why you can sometimes download other updates if you change your region setting.

Well, I downloaded the Orange Media Player (384K) and installed it. It's a streaming media player built by Emblaze Media. The 'Help' -> 'About' screen touts the version as 0300,0012,0044,0031

I can't get it to open a local file... but it will allow you to open a RSTP file via a URL.

For those whom aren't familiar with RSTP, it's a streaming media protocol. The most common implementation is Real's Realplayer. I don't know if this player will open Real's *.ram or other files...Emblaze's website (www.emblaze.com) describes a packaged streaming media platform based on MPEG4 open standards - but who knows? I'll play with it some more and let you know...

Regards,

Do you have any example urls I could try to see how this works on my phone, is it worth having both Emblaze and WMP?

If you connect to the Internet through the cradle (you should find how to to do this somewhere else in the forum), you can select "update" and do it trough the PC.

How come the Swiss get the updates available to them, but not the british ? Surely the British are the bigger potential market for such features.

Any comment from Orange on this ?

NOTE: I don't want to start the Swiss-British war, having a great many friends in Geneva (and having some memorable nights out there)

More on the Orange Media Player MPEG4 support...

If you go to the very bottom of this MMS How To page, and look at the “Video Messaging” with MPeg 4 section, you will see that T-Mobile in Germany enabled this support on their network, so I guess it makes sense that Switzerland got an MPEG4 enabled media player...

For those of you who managed to download the player from Orange Update (I tried but the download doesn't seem to be available now) there is an MPEG4 video sample for you to try.
